Sticking with tradition, YouthWorks Week 6 joined us for 2 days! On their first day, we presented a “Welcome to No Limits” and “Brain Injury Prevention for Teens” lesson followed by a gross motor game!
On their 2nd day with us, YouthWorks Week 6 helped us with lots of painting and lots of gardening work!
YouthWorks Week 5 put on a beautiful first coat, and YouthWorks Week 6 has finished the picnic table’s “makeover” with a second coat!
These awesome folks also helped us to touch up
Hard at work! Great job!
YouthWorks Week 6 also helped us with some heavy duty weeding!

The disAbility Law Center of Virginia came to give a 3-part presentation on “Knowing Your Rights”, “Voting Rules/Regulations”, and “Rights Restoration” geared for disabled Virginians.
It was a very interesting presentation! We are more confident in our understanding of the “voting process,” and feel that it was important to learn about special accommodations that are available for voters who have a disability. For example, have you heard of “Curbside Voting?” Curbside Voting is a special accommodation that can be made for disabled voters who are unable to vote absentee, or do not have the ability to enter their polling location. It means just what you think it means – poll workers will come out and assist you if you are unable to get inside!
It is important to know that this organization is available to assist disabled Virginians! They have an easy to use website (www.dlcv.org) as well as having an advocate on-duty Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8:30 AM-4:00 PM to discuss disability advocacy issues. Give them a call toll-free at 800-552-3962!
The No Limits Hot Dog Cart!!!! Say what?! We are so excited to get cooking with our new cart! We had a “practice run” with the cart this week during our cookout held in memory of our dear friend, Grandmaster Elton Trower.
CL getting ‘er all set up!
Going to add the dogs now…
Ready to serve!
We intend for the No Limits Hot Dog Cart to be opened to the public VERY SOON! Look out for an “OPEN” sign and/or further announcements on our blog! This hot dog cart was funded by the Eastern Shore of Virginia Community Foundation as part of our Productivity and Sustainability Project!
Zel was making himself a salad with lettuce from our garden! Mmm, mmm, mmm!
Brandon and David are the Batman twins!

On their first day, YouthWorks Week 4 received their “Welcome to No Limits” and “Brain Injury Prevention for Teens” lessons!
We then, of course, showed them how to work on your Gross Motor Skills!
YouthWorks Week 4 also learned to work on their cognitive skills by utilizing an adapted version of the game “Family Feud” that we call “Category Feud”!
They found Rachel’s T-Rex and brought him out to play!
Day 2 with YouthWorks Week 4 we worked on some ongoing projects!
In these shots you’ll see volunteers assisting with our Catnip Cat Toy production for local kitties in shelters!
One volunteer teaching another to sew! Cool!
YouthWorks Week 4 also helped us to make more dog biscuits for pups in local shelters!
David was happy to assist YouthWorks with biscuit making!
Helping with outdoor projects! Here are some volunteers helping us to salvage our picnic table! It was beginning to fall apart, but thanks to YouthWorks volunteers and Donnie & Maryann Brittingham, we think it’s going to look almost brand new soon!
Using our new Power Washer to wash the garden shed. The sheds look really nice! Thank you!
Painting our plant boxes. The cucumbers and carrots now have a “fancy” new place to grow!
Thank you ALL so much for all of your hard work!
We appreciate this wonderful organization so very much, and we hope you all enjoyed your time on the Eastern Shore as much as we enjoyed having y’all here!
